We just stopped in for scrumptious desserts and we're not disappointed. The tables around us are many delicacies so I would say they offer a nice fresh variety. The waitstaff spoke Spanglish.

Just wanted a cold beer after diving. We sat outside for the marina view. We waited a while to be served. We eventually left the money of the table we could not get a bill The tables are right above the dock. You get the fumes from the boats as they come a go

A complete American breakfast menu with great service and food. A lot of local and boating guests can make it a little crowded , but it's worth the wait.

Easy to reach, just at the end of malecon is Marina Cortez, once there you can have a nive breakfast or dine at The Dock Cafe. There is a smoking area if you need.

We visited the Dock Cafe for dinner. I ordered the California Burger, which is a large burger with bacon and avocado. The food was really good and the service was also. As usually the beer was icey cold. The restaurant is air conditioned which is important in August here. I would definitely recommend the burgers here and will return again.

Great hidden spot with picturesque Marina vistas. Calm, relaxing cafe with great food. Delicious American hamburgers, yummy salads, big varied menu and great service. A hidden understated gem.

We had our boat in the Marina de La Paz and visited this place frequently. They run a great breakfast although the service can be a little slow if they get too busy. even people from outside the marina were coming in with families to enjoy the food and the views.

It's fun to sit outside or inside by the windows and watch all the live aboard people motoring back and forth from their boats to the restaurant. I would guess the fish is not caught too long before it's cooked because my fish sandwich was amazing! There is a very broad menu so there is something for everyone here. One... More

I actually have eaten there a few times. But usually only because someone wanted to try it out. The food is average to good. Prices are higher than they should be. That is because they are mainly catering to the gringo boating community. Service in most cases was slow. They waiters seemed to be indifferent. They do have the best... More
